Today is Mother’s Day in England. I remember buying an advanced mother’s day card in Card Factory a day before I left England last month. Wow. I realized just now that it’s been a month since I left UK!
I miss my Mama Brenda. My decision to push through with the UK Trip late last year is something that I am really happy about. I did risk a number of things here in Manila just to embark on that trip and stay with my mom and brother for almost three months. My life there is occasionally boring (that is when my mom is at work and my brother is still in school LOL) but it is also life changing. I met some new friends there (mostly my mom’s friends too LOL) and even if it sounds a bit weird, i can say that i am already satisfied with a simple life.
When I was still in England, I would wait for my mom to come home from work (usually at 10pm) and eat dinner with her. Ate Virgie cooks my favorite Filipino dishes most of the time (Pinapaitan FTW!). At times, we would go out and eat dinner at Wetherspoon or Harvester. I was able to visit nearby towns too.
See, my mom and i don’t have a perfect relationship. We never had a major fight, but we usually have misunderstandings related to my being lazy and no interest in vanity. I am not sure if my being Taurus and her being Virgo has something to do with it too LOL. I love my mom because i’ve seen how she sacrificed for me, my brother and my dad just to give us a good life. To be honest, the early part of our family life is such a tough one in terms of emotions. Instead of sulking and feeling sorry, I witnessed how she took it as a challenge to be a better nurse, a better wife, a better mother and a better person.
I am not expressive to my mom, but I appreciate her so much. She usually tells me that i love my father more than i do love her, but i love them equally naman eh! 😛 It’s just that I think even if i am a girl, i inherited most of my dad’s ways (the good way haha 😛 ). I am not making promises for now, but i will really try my best to give you what you want soon. You need to be pampered too. I am hoping to travel with you soon (why don’t you and Carlo visit me here too? Let’s go to Boracay or Palawan!).
Again, Happy Mother’s Day Mama Brenda! I know you miss me. Tiis-tiis na lang. Who knows, later on nand’yan na naman ang unica hija mo hihi iloveyouverymuch! 😀

Mother’s day doesn’t happen for another month in the US. But I think it’s so nice for you to write a post on what your mom means to you.
